john mccain noted that morsi helped to stop the fighting between gaza and israel and suggested that u.s. aid to egypt now could be in jep jeopardy. we broker add cease-fire which is incredibly fragile, but this is not acceptable, not what the american taxpayers expect and our dollars will be directly related to the progress towards democracy. >> mccain says the u.s. could as marshal world public opinion against morsi, harris. >> harris: what about the democrats and their tone? it seems they were kind of going back and forth on their reaction. >> everyone is anxious to see what happens next and they're waiting to see, bun democratic congressman stressed the importance of patience and diplomacy. we're going to go in there and bully them into doing the right thing, why diplomacy is so important here and the way we do it is so important. we have to try to influence behind the scenes. >> and the egyps stock markets are going to dive in the wake of this, dropping nearly ten parents, harris. >> harris: thank you very much. fox confirming republican peter king will step down as part of the ho
. rice will sit down with senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayott. in recent days, senator mccain has softened his criticism as rice insists that she was relying on talking points from the intelligence community. last night, senator graham rejecting her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us and now we'll listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> she reportedly called the meeting. seems like a smart move. what do you think? >> well, i think it's a smart move for john mccain to take the meeting. they're boxed in. this is not a fight they want right now. it was a stupid fight to pick. they put themselves into a corner and now they've

. senators john mccain, lindsey graham and kelly ayotte say they're even more troubled now after meeting with ambassador rice. the attack on libya on september 11 killed the u.s. ambassador, cries stevens and three other americans. five days later, ambassador rice went on the sunday talk shows and said u.s. officials believed it was a spontaneous reaction to protest over an anti-islam video. not a preplanned terrorist attack. first the controversy was over whether the white house made the change in the talking points. but that's past because intelligence officials say they gave ambassador rice those talking points. today senator graham called the information disconnected from reality. >> not only is the information bad and i'm more convinced than ever that it was bad, it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> shepard: rice said while we wish we had had perfect information, just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. neither i nor anyone else in the
on capitol hill. u.n. ambassador susan rice met with three top republicans about libya. jenna: john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayotte criticized explanations rice given in the past and obviously today and on the attack in benghazi the meeting doesn't appear to help smooth away for rice's widely anticipated nomination as secretary of state. here is senator ayotte moments ago ago. >> when you have a position where your ambassador to the united nations you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparations and responsibilities for that job and that is troubling to me. jenna: kelly wright, live in washington with more. kelly, the three senators just held the news briefing which we played a little bit from kelly ayotte. tell us generally what was their response? what sort of reaction they had to what they heard inside that closed-door meeting? >> reporter: let's stay on focus on that because that is really telling. each senator saw the tone being stunned by the information they heard in this closed-door meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice. they are significantly tr
of her most outspoken critics, republican senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayotte to set the record straight. rice had gone on five sunday talk shows days after the attack and called it a spontaneous demonstration sparked by an antimuslim film and did not mention the link to al qaeda. after all this taking on her critics, the republican senators weren't impressed. >> bottom line, i'm more dist b disturbed now than i was before that the 16 september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi, libya, by ambassador rice, i think does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> rice maintains she did nothing wrong. issuing a statement saying we stressed that neither i nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the american people at any stage of this process. peter brooks is a former deputy assistant secretary of defense, general wesly clark and, of course, former democratic presidential candidate. senator mccain was asked who do you blame more at this point? ambassador rice or president obama? he says
vocal critics, like senator john mccain are turning up the heat on president obama and the state department. >> the problem is the president of the united states in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terrorist attack. he hadn't. jon: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington. she has more on all of this. so this shift in focus to the state department, what are we learning about that, catherine? report thank you, jon, and good morning. we may learn early as this week when secretary of state hillary clinton will testify on capitol hill about the warnings and intelligence leading up to the 9/11 attack on the consulate. on sunday talk shows leading republicans pointed to what they believe is the culpability of clinton's state department. >> why weren't the warnings about the need for security heeded? why weren't the requests for help during the terrorist attack answered? and why did the administration think it had to cover up all of the things that occurred before by putting out to the american people a narrative that i think will
with senator john mccain. before the hamas/israel, flared up. susan rice, she said, initially, basically, her talking points she went on sunday shows with came from fbi and cia not the white house and state department. which kind of threw a little bit of water on some critics who were arguing that her initial response was somehow politically motivated to protect the president. >> and now she's saying she would love to discuss everything with john mccain personally. i fiend interesting. >> wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall of that discussion. >> definitely. >>> now, to the stunning resignation of congressman jesse jackson jr. he is giving of his seat after 17 years in the house. jackson won re-election though in the mayo clinic at the time being treated for bipolar disorder. now, in his resignation letter, he said his deteriorating health is diminishing his ability to serve. jackson reportedly facing a federal investigation as well into possible misuse of campaign funds. >>> okay. if you are not already where you want to be to celebrate turkey day, now might be the time, the perfect ti
should tell you, with the acting director of the cia. listen to what john mccain said, one of the chief critics. listen to what he said after the meeting. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get concerning evidence that was overwhelming leading up to the attack on our consulate, the tragic deaths of four brave americans, and whether ambassador rice was prepared or informed sufficiently in order to give the american people a correct depiction of the events that took place. >> so the question is, why are they more troubled? what did she tell them that makes them so much more upset? i spoke to senator ayotte, she said when you are in a position of in her words, significant response as susan rice was, that she has a responsibility to ask more questions before she goes out and gives the public what we know are -- were misleading -- misleading information about what really happened in benghazi. that's the crux of the reason why these republican senators are more upset. i've been doing reporting sense this meeting and the source i spoke w
at the attacks. today's meetings come after a first round of talks with senators john mccain, lindsey graham and kelly ayotte. and those meetings as we first reported to you yesterday did not appear to go very well. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more. >> reporter: thank you, jenna. ambassador rice is meeting two more republicans senators bob corker and susan collins. you're looking at stakeout position on capitol hill. ambassador rice is expected to meet with six senators. if she is nominated as next secretary of state she will need six republicans to vote for her to region the magic number of 60 for confirmation. so far republicans are not convinced. >> yesterday in talking to some of those to whom she talked i'm absolutely convinced in my mind bill, she is part of the cover-up. she knew all the time the cia information that was given to her. >> reporter: senators graham, mccain and ayotte tellingers after yesterday's meeting that the information let them more disturbed and not reassured about rice's benghazi comments that which portrayed the
to meet with a number of member of congress. following the meeting, senator lindsay graham and john mccain spoke to others. their comments to reporters are about 10 minutes. >> we had a very candid discussion with ms. rice and the acting director c.i.a., we are troubled by some of the answers we have gotten. there was evidence leading up to the attack on the consulate and the tragic deaths of brave americans and ambassador rice was warned sufficiently. it is clear that the information given to the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration that triggered it. it was not. there were many indications that that was not the case, including statements from libyans and other americans. bottom line i'm more concerned than i was before that the explanation about how four americans tide does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was wrong. in realtime it was disconnected from reality. anybody looking at the threats, it would jump out at you that this was an al qaeda storm in the making. i'm disappointed in our intelligence community. i
senator mccain on the talk shows this weekend backing up a little bit in terms of his opposition to her. number one. and number two, it is clear from everything she said since that statement and everything the administration said she was given talking points. she read them. she didn't have access to tell against and she put out what she was told to put out. i think it is important to recognize this president has a right to have the person he wants, not what the united states senate wants but who he wants representing this country and him in dealing with foreign affairs, i think susan rice is more than qualified, more than competent and i'm convinced she will nominate her and she will be easily confirmed because as, her role of just reading these talking points was not coming up with any intelligence assessment and i think that is certainly, i think the congress has a right to understand why she was given these talking points when facts may have been somewhat different but that shouldn't affect in any way her confirmation. megyn: dana milbank of "the washington post" had a piece last wee
